If you visit a lot of websites regularly, then remembering the login information to all the sites is quite a challenge. I know, the browsers these days are smart enough and with the help of add-ons, you don’t have to remember all the passwords, but what if you are travelling and not carrying your laptop with you ?
This is where LastPass comes in picture. LastPass is a free, online password manager software which has the coveted sync capability. It aims at making online website browsing a safer, faster and easier experience on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
Majority of the websites today require registration and login. Remembering loads of usernames and passwords can be quite a chore. So you use your computer’s inbuilt password remembering system. But what if you want to access a website through another computer? Retrieving lost passwords and making new ones can be a waste of time.
LastPass requires you to remember only one strong LastPass password. The software remembers all your other passwords allowing you to log into websites with a single mouse click, seamlessly, without typing in passwords. What is more, LastPass software synchronizes your data across browsers securely allowing you access to websites at anyplace anytime.
You don’t have to worry about your password security as your passwords are encrypted only on your PC using 256-bit AES encryption accepted by the US Government for protecting top secret data; they are made accessible online without you having to memorize them. Only your LastPass password can unlock these passwords and only you have access to them. Your LastPass password will act as the key to content in your database and hence no hackers will be able to hack and get hold of your sensitive data.
LastPass works across multiple browser and computers. Besides browsers, it can also import passwords from Roboform, KeePass, Sxipper, 1Password, MyPasswordSafe, Password Agent, Password Safe, Passpack and TurboPasswords.
LastPass stores your sites’ information and other sensitive data in a database available for view and editing. If a site is not on the database it will ask you to remember the password, quite similar to the functionality most browsers offer today.
Lastpass takes backups of your passwords so that they are never lost. You can also backup data to a USB key and use Firefox portable or Lastpass pocket to access data from it, though this is available if you choose to be a premium customer. You can export LastPass data without an Internet connection if you use the plug-ins.
As Premium users you can enjoy the AD free LastPass, which allows you to access passwords while travelling, because it is compatible with Windows Mobile and Blackberry phone. And soon they will be rolling out support for iPhone as well. Premium feature costs just about $12 / year.
LastPass is key logger safe. Which ensures all your other data is safe and intact !
